Kourtney Kardashian recently joined the list of celebrity fans of the Ketogenic diet. She praised the results of this weight-cutting diet plan on her blog Poosh.

“My body never looked better than when I did the keto diet two and half years ago, when I did it for two months,” she wrote.

In keto diet, the body of a dieter switches into a metabolic state called Ketosis or keto in which the body burns fat instead of burning carbs for energy. It is done by reducing the carb intake to 50 grams a day.

When the body gradually runs out of the fuel it was using quickly, it starts breaking down the fat and protein for energy. This process will eventually help the dieter to lose weight.

The eldest Kardashian said Keto is the best method for her to kick-start weight loss as well as to train the body to burn fat and curb sugar cravings.

“I’ve been treating myself lately and really want to get back on track, so I’ve committed myself to keto for the next month,” she added.

The 40-year-old reality star even shared an outline of her meal plan, which consists of food items rich in high-protein, high-fat and low-carb. As per Poosh, the ultra-clean version of Kardashian’s keto diet goes like this:

For breakfast, I’ll have my avocado smoothie. Since I’m not able to eat honey or dates while on keto, I’ll swap that for a couple drops of Stevia. I’ll still mix in my MCT oil, bone broth powder, and blue-green algae.

My go-to for lunch is usually a protein-based chef salad with turkey, a base of mixed greens, and egg whites.

For dinner, I keep my meals really clean and simple. I’ll usually eat chicken or salmon, and I love getting creative to substitute carbs. I make cauliflower rice or broccoli rice because even though they’re made entirely from shredded veggies, they kind of trick my brain and make me feel like I’m eating some carbs. I remember last time being able to eat a small amount of sweet potato once in a while.

Like I mentioned earlier, I really try not to snack while on keto at all. If I find I really need something to keep me going throughout the day, I’ll have a green tea or some bone broth to give me a boost. I will also eat nuts like walnuts or pecans.

Meanwhile, The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star did not forget to reveal the reason for following this diet plan. She said her doctor had found high levels of lead and mercury in her system a couple of years ago. So, he advised her to try out keto diet for a metal detox.

“I had a really positive experience the last time around and wanted to restart my routine this summer. It’s definitely a more restrictive eating plan, but I found that once I knew the ground rules, I was very strict and really stuck to it,” she added.

Though many of her fans could be eager to try out keto diet with her, the Kardashian said it is not safe to start a new diet plan without consulting a doctor. “Everybody is different, so I suggest consulting a doctor before jumping into new eating habits,” she wrote in her blog.

It is also worth noting that ketogenic diet should not be followed for a long time, mainly because it focuses on weight loss, according to web MD.
